Bluewater is 4km from the beautiful car-free lake-side village of Orta San Giulio, which is the centre of the lake from a tourist perspective.  There are regular boat services between Pettenasco, Orta San Giulio, Omegna and and other lake-side villages.  Miami beach at the south end of the lake has sunbeds, pedalos, canoes, bar and restaurant, and is at the south end of the lake just 6km from Bluewater.  See also our pages on the local area, suggested day trips, and activities and sports at Lake Orta.
